Nanofibers in Filtration

Nanofibers in Filtration

June 20, 2023, Tuesday

8:00am-10:00am, ET Canada & US

Business Meeting

$USD 350

$USD 175 (Member Only)

Course Objectives:

Nanofibers have been rapidly growing recently in the global filtration market for advanced filter product design in both air and liquid applications, such as engine intake, gas turbine, industrial dust removal, fuel filtration, personal protection, etc. In this course, we will quickly review the principles of why nanofibers can be so effective to enhance the filtration performance and the methods used in the industry to produce various nanofibers, then we will discuss how to structure the nanofibers in your filter media for your nanofiber filter product design. The updated new developments, unmet needs, and trends will also be discussed.

1. Introduction and Review

  •    What are nanofibers

  •    Why Nanofibers

  •    Nanofiber applications in filtration

2. Methods to produce nanofibers

  • Electrospinning

  • Meltblowing

  • Forcespinning

  • Electroblown

  • Fiber splitting

  • Shear spinning

  • Solution blowing

  • Fibrillation

2. Nanofiber Filter Media Structure

  • On the top

  • Mixed blend

  • Sandwiched

  • Laminated

  • Gradient depth structure

  • Nanofiber/particle composite

  • Stand-alone

3. Design Different Nanofiber Filters

  •    Industrial dust removal

  •    Applications in transportation

  •    Gas turbine air intake

  •    New nanofiber facemasks for PPE

  •    Others

4. Unmet Needs and Future Trends

Christine Sun, Ph.D.

Dr. Christine Sun, President of Waterloo Filtration Institute, is a renowned technical and market expert in the global filtration industry. With over 30 years of experience in both academia and the industry, she has an in-depth knowledge of filtration, and extensive hands-on expertise in product development, with over 100 technical publications and patents. She is also actively involved in many air/liquid filter standard test developments.


Dr. Sun received her Ph.D. from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, and her Executive Certificate from Northwestern University - Kellogg School of Management. From 2004 to 2011, Dr. Sun worked for Freudenberg Filtration Technologies as the R&D manager and Technology Director for Donaldson 2011-2013. She was the AFS Chair from 2016 to 2017 and received the AFS Fellow Award in 2019, Sr. Scientist Award in 2012, and the best paper award from INDA in 2008. She is also an editorial board member for Textile Research Journal and Journal of Industrial Textiles.


Dr. Sun is also recognized as "a brilliantly articulate and lively instructor who is skilled in guiding filter media professionals through the complexities of the air, liquid, and nanotechnology markets." Over the years, she has developed many unique professional courses to promote the global filtration industry for a clean, healthy, and sustainable world, such as "Nanofiber Technologies in Filtration" (AFS, 2013-2019), "Filter Media Training Course" (INDA, 2014-2017), "Liquid Filtration Tutorial" (INDA 2013), "Air Filtration Market, Technologies and Trends" (AFS, 2015-2019), "Filter Media Market and Technologies" (WFC12, 2016), "Filter Media Technologies" (AFS, 2015-2019), and "Facemask Media Technologies (AFS 2020). 'The add addition of INDA's Nonwoven Filter Media Training Course was tremendously received' as Dave Rousse, INDA's President, said after Dr. Sun's course at Filtration 2014.
